    Having Meaningful Conversations with Young People

    Having Meaningful Conversations with Young People

    Having conversations with young people can be scary. If those conversations are about important issues or topics, having conversations that matter can feel like an overwhelming  pressure. Laying the groundwork for transformative conversations happens through preparing and connecting. This leads to open discussion and hopefully engagement with the world. This episode talks about 1 method to help lead young people in conversations that are meaningful.

    Theological Concepts: Conversion

    Theological Concepts: Conversion

    There are a lot of theological words and concepts that get thrown around in churches. Often pastors and leaders just assume that everyone knows what they mean and therefore don’t take the time to explain those concepts and the role they have in faith. This session talks about conversion: what it looks like to start a journey of following Jesus and how we can support young people as they begin that journey themselves
    If you’re interested in the idea of conversion, I really like Richard V. Peace’s Conversion in the New Testament!

    Theological Concepts: The Image of God

    Theological Concepts: The Image of God

    There are a lot of theological words and concepts that get thrown around in churches. Often pastors and leaders just assume that everyone knows what they mean and therefore don’t take the time to explain those concepts and the role they have in faith. This session talks about the Image of God, an idea that’s present in Genesis 1 than helps to explain who we are and the role we have on Earth. 
    If you’re interested in the idea of the Image of God and how the context of the Ancient Near East plays a role in our concept of it, check out “The Liberating Image” by J. Richard Middleton. It’s a dense read but beautifully lays out this concept.

    The Story of God

    The Story of God

    Have you ever read a story from the Bible or maybe heard someone teaching from scripture and were just not sure about how that specific section fit into the overall story? Are you not sure if you even know what the overall story or theme of the Bible is? You’re definitely not alone! Often church leaders talk about pieces of scripture without helping people understand the overall story: the story of God. This is the story that God has written and continues to write in our world and in our hearts. 
    In this training, we break down the story of scripture into 7 acts: creation, fall, promise, Israel, Jesus, church and restoration. By walking through each section, we hope you see how God is develop and progressing this story not just in the Bible but also in the world. God has a story and is inviting for us to join the story!

    The State of American Adolescence 3: multiple selves and stress

    The State of American Adolescence 3: multiple selves and stress

    Adolescence is a confusing time. Not just for young people but also for those that care about them. In this series, we will be covering some of the most pertinent issues facing modern adolescents. In this final session, the issued of multiple selves as well as expectation and stress are covered before ending with the question of what adults can do in the face of these issues.
    The questions to reflect on for this session are:

    Where have you seen the dissonance or confusion in the young people entrusted to your care due to their multiple selves?
    What is something that is happening now or has happened recently to a young person that you’re connected to that could be used to help them process across contexts?
    In what area or areas do the adolescents you are closest to feel the most stress and weight of expectation?
    Thinking specifically about 1 or 2 teenagers that you’re close to, what are some things that you could realistically do this week to invest in social capital for them?

    The State of American Adolescence 2: interconnection and systemic abandonment

    The State of American Adolescence 2: interconnection and systemic abandonment

    Adolescence is a confusing time. Not just for young people but also for those that care about them. In this series, we will be covering some of the most pertinent issues facing modern adolescents. In this session, we cover issues of interconnection and systemic abandonment
    The questions to reflect on for this session are:

    Where have you seen or experienced this systemic abandonment in your community?
    Even as an adult, how has deeper interconnection changed the way that you interact or connect with those close to you? How about with acquaintances?
    Consider this situation: a young person has come to you overwhelmed by comments on their social media. They show you a picture they recently posted of them with their friends at a local restaurant. There are multiple comments such as “I’m traumatized. Please get a gym membership” and “You look so ugly. Why are they friends with you?” What are some things not to do when responding to this situation?
